Welcome to the website of    
Podi Lawrence artist - passionate painter, inspiring teacher


Join me at this inspiring place - September 8 - 15, 2020. www.greekislandpaintingtrips.com

I had a wonderful week with some of he most enthusiastic guests in May this year. There is so much to inspire on Kalymnos; off-the-track of the traditional holiday destinations.......it offers peaceful, quiet, inspiring scenes, from traditional style boats, quiet beaches and seascapes, traditional Greek white and blue houses. We visit a variety of places to give alternative inspiration, sample the delightful local food and meet lots of interesting people.   You will stay in excellent comfortable accommodation, and benefit from the expertese of full time artist/teacher Podi Lawrence, and British tour guides Liz and John to ensure a relaxing, creative and enjoyable stay.  We also include a welcome evening and a celebration night to round off your week.


Podi encourages you to experiment with ways of applying any media. Learning to ‘let go’ is possibly the best lesson to learn when it comes to painting.  For a holiday such as this Podi recommends water based media to be able to travel light.  She teaches all levels whether beginners or experienced, seeking new inspiration you will find plenty on Kalymnos and Telendos.  Podi believes in the power of learning from demonstration and application. 

Join us for a week or two on this island paradise - just painting and enjoying the company of like-minded people.....well maybe a bit of swimming, enjoying good cuisine and wine and the greek hospitality and history.

"Thank you very much for all you did to make the holiday such a happy one. My daughter and I feel we learnt a lot.....thank you very much for all you did to make the holiday such a happy one." ......Gerry, Bucks.

Simply Degas, refreshing post-impressionism Podi Lawrence captures the exquisite in lush landscapes, in the story-telling of her portraiture, and in jazz-infused snapshots of life caught on canvas. her versatility in all mediums, a rarity; her spontaneity & passion with paint, a treasure. 

"Our painting holiday in France seems a long time ago, I certainly had a good time and learned quite a bit.....and appreciated the hard work from yourself....." Wendy, Eltham

"I certainly enjoyed France very much indeed, and I gained a lot from your teaching for which I am very grateful...."  Walter, Bromley
